Total bollocks of course : aircraft, history (only 150 years of existence, no invaders ??) and film. Wagner is a strange choice of music too... Thank God this is all in the past now.

The Yanks and Aussies!
Combo of 2 films here. Both about 10 min apiece..
First we have "Bomber" a very good and detailed account on the building of an actual bomber. I'll say that this was better then the already excellent "Birth Of The B-29 Bomber" on here. The narration is great too. I almost want to reach over and wipe the guy's drool from his chin since he's just foaming at the the mouth about describing the airplane here. hehehe
2nd movie was a bit of a surprise (I was like, um, there's 10 min left in the running time and we're seeing credits? Oh another movie..) this is an AUSTRALIAN wartime industrial about making a plane, albeit smaller. Fun to listten to the aussie narration and note the differences between the urgencies of the situation. Liked how the narrator stressed the women working there too.. Albeit a little condenscending.
